Your pour over coffee brewer has a reservoir that holds more than a pot of water. First thing you need to do is turn off the machine. Then put the empty coffee pot on the burner. Then take another container and fill it with fresh cold water and pour it slowly into the coffee maker until it starts to come out into the coffee pot. Stop pouring in water.
Now turn the machine on and let it heat up. Now you can brew normally. The reservoir has to be filled before you turn it on or you will end up eventually burning up the heating element.
Hot water is poured over
ground coffee, which is contained within a filter. The water then steeps and drips through,
producing coffee. This method of making
coffee is also referred to as filtered coffee.
The tank inside holds about 2 and a hlalf pots of water. Once the tank is full, whatever you pour in will come out. The unit has to be plugged in to make coffee. Leave a pot under the brew funnel and pour a pot of water in. If nothing comes out within a minute, pour another pot of water in. Still if nothing comes out do it again. This time for sure water will come out. It will take avout 10 minutes to get hot enough the first time it is full to make coffee. If you have a thermometer, the water should be about 190 degrees F to make coffee correctly.
Bunn Home brewers don't perculate. They work the same way that commercial brewers do. Fillit with water, let it heat for about 20 minutes, then put your filter and coffee grounds in the funnel, pour a pot of water into the machine, put the pot on the warmer, and let the water run through. Then enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee.
It sounds as though the thermal cutout has been put to the test and it didn't pass. I would advise you to try to get the company that the repairman works for to replace the entire machine, after all it is brand new and changing parts at this venue could void the warantee.
Does it make steam or can you hear the water boiling? Try and pour 4 cups of vinegar or lime away in it if it is clogged or plugged up from lme or mineral deposits, if it not getting hot( you can tell very easily by seeing if the plate the pot sits on is getting hot) then the thermocouple or heating element is shot.
This has been a problem with many carafes. I tried something I saw on a home show once, and it works, but... it may seem weird and undesirable. Unless you pour just the tiniest stream, the liquid wants to stay with the pot, you see. It will be attracted along the spout back down the pot, causing the dribble.
Put just a tiniest smear of shortening or oil on the pouring lip, and the problem will instantly disappear.
You've already guessed the undesirable part of this, right? Yep. It doesn't last for long because the hot water cuts through the film after a few pours. And, who wants Crisco in their coffee?
I didn't notice anything different with my coffee when I tried it. Probably not enough grease to make that much difference.
It sounds like you have a pour over model and the problem is the tank
isn't full. Turn the machine off (or unplug it). Put a pot on the
warmer like you are going to brew coffee. Pour clean cold water into
the top until it starts coming out the sprayhead (above where the
coffee grounds go). Now plug it in and turn on. Let it heat up then you
The way your machine works is that there is always
about 2-1/2 pots of water in the tank. The water you pour in to make
coffee is actually pushing the hot water in the tank out. So, if you
don't fill the tank before using it, you may be hurting the heating
element since it isn't totally submerged in water.
